[ cheering and applause ] >> oh. >> secretary clinton still greeted like a rock star today at the agency she has led for the past four years. hillary clinton, of course, is not just somebody who came in a very close second to barack obama in trying to win the democratic party's presidential nomination, who then got a high-ranking cabinet post as a consolation prize. no, hillary clinton is really her own thing. her career in public life, in public office is unlike anybody else in american history. she went from being an accomplished lawyer in her early career to being the first lady of arkansas. she then became a very high profile first lady of the united states for her husband's two terms in office. she was the first modern first lady to turn th
is your assessment? >> i think the secretary of state under the obama administration does not have foreign policy. it is the obama administration foreign policy. now if she does it well it is going to go wrong because the direction of the white house is going wrong anyway. she can be mediocre, otherwise she won't be a good secretary of state. the bottom line is looking at the facts. madam secretary saidthat there were many people in congress to criticize her who did not look at facts. i'm worried the demint -- administration is looking at facts. in libya did not realize they had militia that were enemies. that is the mother of all problems. lou: whether it is libya, ether it is afghanistan, the questions compound themselves, and now president obama makes it clear that we will have even as he is cutting budgets and talking about further cuts in the defense budget pursuing larger missions in, of all places, north africa. >> well, i think we need to prevent the spread of terrorism to north africa because as we learned in afghanistan. lou: it is too late. >> no pomade is not. lou: it is there.

that in if first two years of president obama's administration there were four times the number of targeted killings than in eight years of president bush's administration. your testimony today that the huge increase in number of lethal strikes has no connection to the change in the obama administration's detention policy? because, obviously, for capturing a terrorist we have the opportunity to interrogate that individual and perhaps learn about ongoing plots. if the strike is done that opportunity is lost. are you saying today, it is totally unconnected to the obama administration's shift in its detainee policy? >> i can say that there is not an occasion that we had the opportunity to capture a terrorist and we didn't and we decided to do a strike. there is no correlation in any type of the c.i.a.'s interrogation program. if you look at the last four years what happened in a number of places, such as yemen eastern areas, there was a growth of al qaeda, quite unfortunately. what we tried to do in this administration is to take every measure to protect the lives of american citizens whether
